Earning my stripes


I have recently started climbing at The Arch Climbing Wall in Bermondsey , South London. This is my second week and I love it!

It is so challenging- my arms, legs and mind doing things that they have never done before.

I can complete many of the spotty circuits

and some of the black circuits.

However the Tiger circuit is where I have met my challenge. I just can not seem to do it! Don’t have quite enough stretch in my arms and fingers. Also I seem to lose confidence half-way up the wall, panic and drop down to the ground.

Of course, all the other climbers around me look very experienced and make it look so easy – like little monkeys!

However, I shall get there – I will earn my climbing stripes
